ET! Online is reporting the breaking news that Janet Jackson married her billionaire Arabian prince, Wissam Al Mana, in a secret ceremony last year. We shouldn’t be surprised: Jackson secretly married her first husband, James DeBarge, when they were both teenagers. The marriage was annulled a year later.
She wed her 2nd husband, Rene Elizondo, also in secret, in 1991. That marriage ended in a bitter divorce when Janet learned he cheated on her.
From ET! Online:
In their first joint statement as a couple, Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana confirm the news exclusively to ET, saying, “The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony.”
“Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children’s charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy. With love, Wissam and Janet”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
